I’ve been facilitating open to the public DIY screen-printing studios in Sydney for the past 13 years across a few independent creative spaces such as Anyplace studios in Rozelle, Blackwire records in Annandale and currently run The Printroom out of Monster Mouse Studios in the industrial landscape of Marrickville.

I studied textile design at the Eastern Sydney Institute of Technology and instead of being disheartened by the move of hand printing to digital forms and sitting behind a computer all day, I decided to start my own studio. This could not have been achieved without the support and head start afforded to me by Anyplace projects - a group of folks who reclaimed unused buildings and transformed them into creative community driven spaces.

I spend most of my time teaching people how to screen print, Shibori dye fabrics and other surface design techniques. I print a lot of band merch for friends and friends I haven’t met, and help run Monster Mouse Studios as well as work on my own artistic practice.

Carriza’s screen printing class was throughly enjoyable. Carizza was very knowledgeable and helpful, the class was well organised, and you get plenty of time to get creative with your colours and screen printing.

I attended with my husband and 7 year old daughter, we all highly recommend! Can’t wait to head back to the studio with some more designs!

Leanne Courtney Jul 2024

What a fabulous way to spend a morning, learning the craft of screen printing from an inspiring instructor.

This edgy crisp art form is gaining popularity on social media, so I wanted to see what all the hype was about.

First we spent a short time going through techniques and processes, and then the fun began. Choosing a design I loved, (I was really grateful to be given options) choosing the stunning bold colours, applying paint to the screen, and then like magic, lifting the frame to expose a beautiful, vibrant design.

The teacher was knowledgeable and taught clearly, I feel like I came away with a good understanding of how it all works. I’d highly recommend this as a fun friend group session to share the experience and each take home a memory piece of time well spent together. Great team bonding exercise too.

I went alone and had a fantastic time, I’ll definitely be booking in another session with friends now I know a wide range of people would find this class engaging.

I love that I had my artwork to take home, I’m going to frame it as an art piece.

Highly recommend this class. Truly happy with what I created and how the class was taught by Carizza.

Carizza was an excellent workshop teacher and ensured that all students enjoyed the experience and achieved a successful result. Her extensive experience, knowledge, expert advice and patience was highly appreciated by students and accompanying staff. Thank you Carizza!

Oscar Sawyer Jun 2024

I went in to make merch for my band.
EXCELLENT value. Not only did Carizza give me excellent advice and hold my hand the whole way through, she also made me super excited to come in again and print some more things!

Jackie Wotton Jun 2024

A friends birthday get together, carizza our teacher was great, very helpful, patient, accomodating & listened to our questions to achieve the end product we wanted, gave us a good explanation of the whole screen process from begin to end. Venue quirky, functional & as clean as an art studio could be, with consideration to the environment,
Parking was easy just out the front
Answered my question before the event very quickly too

What a wonderful experience. Carizza structured the class well to ensure the best us of time. She gave well explained instructions and everyone’s pieces worked beautifully. I was the only participant who had had previously screen printed and I went to extend my knowledge of creating emulsion screens. I learned heaps. So much fun - I would recommend

Joanne Woodcroft Mar 2024

I thoroughly enjoyed my screen printing class. Carriza is a great teacher and I learnt a lot

Birgit Heinemann Mar 2024

It was a very informative and interesting class. The teacher was lovely. Nice to take finished works home.

Jessa McCoy Feb 2024

Amazing class, so cool to learn such detail of how to screenprint, how to make the stencils in the first place. didn't know we'd learn such detail so that was amazing!
such a nice teacher, and my Partner and I ended up with really good pieces that looked so professional.

Jonathan Feb 2024

Carizza is a great teacher and facilitator. She showed us the various Shibori techniques to use and then encouraged us to explore and experiment on the different materials that were provided. We got to take home a tea towel, two bags, and a few pieces of material. The best part was being able to complete the whole dyeing process during the class. The class was good value, very relaxed and we all had lots of fun.

Lillian Chen Feb 2024

We enjoyed a wonderful private workshop with Carizza on the weekend. She was very generous with her knowledge and made us all feel relaxed while learning shibori. Most of my friends had never taken a workshop like this before and everyone felt that they all went home with some great dyed pieces…in fact we’re all still talking about it. Perfect for a group of friends to learn new skills and to share memorable experiences.

Textiles class review by Lillian Chen - Sydney

Lillian Chen Feb 2024

This was my first Shibori dyeing workshop. It was a real challenge to ignite my creative side.
Clarizza made the experience so fun and look so easy to do. She showed us several different techniques to try and we were given several different types of materials to dye including a tea towel, a cotton tote and calico bag. We were also encouraged to bring extra things from home. I brought a linen shirt. The best part was taking each piece out of the dye pot, revealing the pattern and watching the oxidisation process change the colour from green to blue.
Good value for money.

Yuka Kaneko Jan 2024

The whole experience was fun.
The teacher was very friendly and helpful telling us various dying techniques.
I left the class thinking i want to stay and do more. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lavina Riley Jan 2024

Best time ever ❤️❤️❤️
Heaps of things to do Ran out of time, need a long day lol
What a lovely teacher she has lots of experience, great knowledge of the product. I would highly recommend that you go to these classes.

Annemarie Kitching Jan 2024

A great welcome on arrival and I finally understood the process of screen printing. My daughter came away with wonderful ideas for her HSC too. Thanks so much

Laura Liu Jan 2024

Unleash the creativity I had so much fun - the print making class was well-conducted with clear instructions. Carizza walked us through all the print making steps, and explained the mechanism behind. Would come back again with my own design next time :P

Excellent class to learn. Also Carizza thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent and knowledge.

Nellie Blundell Nov 2023

I took my 9 year old nephew to the workshop for his birthday and he said ‘this is probably one of the most fun Saturdays I’ve ever had’. He is crazy about drawing and art and we made screen prints of his drawings. it was a fantastic class and Carizza was a wonderful teacher. She packed so much into three hours and was super patient and encouraging. The venue is an inspiring working artists’ studio and really organised and easy to use. So many colours to choose from. We’re thinking about putting together our own home printing set-up now we know how to do it. Thank you Carizza!

The warehouse was so cool. I was right in the middle of it all. Screen print galore. I was there for 3 hours I learnt how they make tshirts and bags. With the best design . I could of chosen my own but I told her what I want and it came out exactly what I wanted. I chose the inks and she said she’s going to put my paper one on the wall ajar a privilege. As for the teacher a true artist and and a great teacher. I even helped clean up just like real screen printers would. This is my second class first was at home and she sent me everything for a one colour. I did this on holidays a two colour with the professionals.Yay.

Heidi Kaye Mar 2023

We had an absolutely excellent morning of learning and making with Carizza! Screen printing as a process was broken down into components that were easy to digest and understand. We also didn’t expect to learn how to do this process again at home, so super happy about that added bonus. Thanks heaps ! Heidi and Chico

Melanie Wales Feb 2023

Great Shibori workshop with great results! Lovely teacher Carizza told us what we needed to know, answered any questions and guided us to produce beautiful patterns. Plenty of practice pieces of fabric included in the workshop. I also think it was worth taking something extra of you own like a cotton t- shirt. Very enjoyable morning.

Laurinda Illman Feb 2023

Loved this class! Right from the moment I signed up it was ace! Carizza was so lovely and when my kit didn’t arrive in time for my scheduled class time, she rescheduled for me as soon as it did arrive. The kit had so much in it, and it was great not to worry about having to find supplies myself. Everything else that was needed, I had at home already. Thank you so much, Carizza, your instruction was fantastic! I would recommend this to anyone interested in learning to screen print.

Our teacher Carizza was amazing, she had great attention to detail and clearly taught us everything we wanted to learn. She answered all the questions we presented on the day which was very helpful. The venue was great, it had everything we needed to learn and was very convenient in terms of parking too. The experience is definitely worth it and I can't wait to do more classes here.

Very affordable price from what you get/learn from the class.
A laid-back environment and easy to go alone and meet other creative people.
I would suggest going to the class with an idea and design of your own, so you get the most form the class. I'm going to go back.
The teacher is professional and patient.
I printed bees on my denim jacket.
The image that is promoted here as the profile photo doesn't represent the Artists work. I look forward to creating with Carizza again.
If you're searching for the property, it's directly opposite a woodwork business across the road. Parking is available.

Marcin Cymbala Jan 2023

Carizza was a very knowledgeable and friendly teacher and the class was fantastic. She explained some technical aspects of screen printing, discussed tools and supplies used in screen printing, went over how we could screen print at home and guided us through the process step-by-step. The range and quality of materials that we were able to print on were varied and great (calico, linen, cotton and seeded paper). There is street parking in front of the venue which is also convenient. Carizza was patient and answered any questions that we had and made sure that she gave everyone feedback which was helpful. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested. :)

Carizza is a great teacher, she covered everything in the workshop outline, presented technical information in an interesting, easy to understand manner, and taught through demonstration first, and then by inviting class members to take part so it was hands on before we even started printing.

It’s a great venue because you learn in a space where practicing artists are working.

There were plenty of materials which I loved because it gave us an idea of what we might like to explore in the future.

Thanks Carizza!

the teacher was Carizza, she was very easy to communicate with, as it was a very small class she also able to give me skills for the specific use I had in mind for the screen printing. I left with all the information and skills level to use this new craft medium. The practical part of the course was easy as she was very organised and there was plenty of space to work in. I left feeling very rewarded by the experience.

This is my favorite class so far.

Carizza Was absolutely brilliant from the first email where I asked about using my own design before booking the class, through to the end of the session when I was asking her a thousand questions about where to purchase supplies and what is and isn’t possible to do with screen printing.

The products sent were top quality, well packaged and arrived in plenty of time.

Carizza is very knowledgeable and is clearly passionate about what she teaches.

She is a very patient and encouraging teacher and I finished the class feeling so energised and excited. I want to print on everything now

Thank you Carizza for introducing me to my new creative outlet.

What was the teacher like? Carizza was an expert in screen printing and was a very patient teacher. She explained and demonstrated the whole process in a way that was easy to understand and by the end of the class we had all made beautiful prints of our own. She was really good at managing expectations upfront, letting us know that it does take time and we'd only get to the "doing" a few hours into the class but time went by so quickly. I'd highly recommend bringing some snacks and something to drink for during the class, also definitely have lunch before you go.
How was the venue? The venue was very cool, a nice big, open space, perfect for getting messy & creating things. It was a cool day when we went but I think it would get quite hot in summer so dress accordingly.
If materials were provided, did you like them? The materials were great, we got to choose 1 product to print on (Tshirt, tote bag, Tea towel, Sample bags) and you could purchase extra if you wanted OR better yet be prepared and bring some items with you to print on!
Was the class good value for money? Absolutely!
What did you do / learn? We learnt how to paint the mesh screens with developing fluid, how to dry them, how to transfer your artwork/design onto the screen by exposing it to light, how to print the design onto a product.

Aimee Dyer Mar 2021

This class was fantastic, Carizza provided a welcoming environment, and a wealth of knowledge for everyone attending.
Carizza takes you through everything step by step and is super helpful if you have any questions.
Materials were all provided, with the option of bringing our own designs or items to print on if we liked. I really enjoyed the way time was split between learning the process and then putting that process into practice too.
Carizza is really passionate about what she does and I came away from the class with a slew of new knowledge that I'm really keen to put to use in my own artistic practice! ✨

First time to do screen printing. Carizza was a wonderful teacher who explained a lot about the screen printing process. Amazing to see the work that goes into it and interesting to see how the prints show up on different textures and colours. Looking forward to using Monster Mouse studios services in the future. Thanks again Carizza

The teacher was patient and clear with all instructions. Helpful in each part if the process. Great fun overall. Thank you

Emerson Wilshier Mar 2021

Carizza was aproachable knowledgeable and a good communicator. A printed overview (with process and tips etc) would have cut been handy. When the practical (fun) part of the workshop was in full swing an assistant might have been a good idea. Splitting the group into two smaller groups might be a good idea?

Di Buckman Nov 2020

Great Teacher, very helpful and informativeshe made sure she spent time with everyone and that we understood the whole process.

Lisa Bradley Nov 2020

I'd been trying to learn how to screen print from YouTube videos but found it very confusing - taking a private class with Carizza changed everything!

I now have a complete understanding of the process - and while the YouTube videos make sense now - I realise that I will be utilising Carizza and the studio whenever I create new designs.

Not knowing quite what to expect, except that all materials were provided, I took with me the new silk-screen I had recently bought and 5 T-shirts. During the class I was able to produce 6 T-shirts and walk away with a fully utilised screen with various designs that I can re-use at home when necessary.

Definitely worth the investment in my time and money. Thanks Carizza!

Rick Robertson Nov 2020

Carizza was an absolute angel! Patient, knowledgeable, sense of humour. It was a fabulous experience that has given us the confidence to embark on our new venture. Thank you so much 10 out of 10.

I booked a small private group of 5 girls (age 10) who are all really good friends. They all loved the class and Carizza was an excellent teacher. She showed the girls so many amazing techniques and they all were able to do easily. Carizza was very clear at explaining what to do and very organised. The girls were very inspired and loved unwrapping their fabrics to see their Shibori patterns.

We will definitely be coming back to do again and would love to try the screen printing too. Carizza has a lot of experience and is a wonderful teacher and really good with kids too.

The venue was also very sanitary and Covid safe.

This class is SO worth it. If you're interested in screen printing, I HIGHLY recommend attending Xx

Juliet Davis Jun 2020

Carizza was very warm and engaging with all participants right from the start. Her knowledge of screen printing was amazing and she had no trouble answering questions. She had a good sense of humour too.
As I didn’t know anything about screen printing I was a little lost with the beginning process but it all came together during the class.
The materials provided were great and I thought the take home items were usable not wasteful.
The venue was good, parking was easy, although I found it very cold in the warehouse. Maybe in the class notes they could add wear warm clothes (I did but it was still cold)!
All up a fantastic class given by a very talented teacher.

Carizza knows her stuff and teaches in a very easy and personable way.

Carizza was an excellent instruction who knew her subject very well. She explained things very well, was keen for us to ask questions and went over anything we were unsure about. Carizza systematically gave everyone an opportunity to do what she had just explained.

Carizza's screenprinting class was amazing! This workshop makes a good birthday present for a group of friends we had so much fun. Carizza is a great teacher and took us through the whole process step-by-step, giving us an in-depth lesson in the complexities of screenprinting. I brought my own drawing to use, and it was so worth it seeing my own design come to life on a tshirt!

I would highly recommend this workshop!

She was really lovely and broke down every single step of the process to help us understand and create our own work.
She is definitely very experienced and made it feel really easy.
The group size (4 people) was ideal, because we all had a chance to work in our designs with her.
She provided us with different materials to test different outcomes, and had a vast range of colours and tools to work with.
I would definitely recommend this class, especially for designers wanting to craft their own products.

This was a great workshop. Carizza is a very positive, friendly and helpful teacher. She had lots of samples to inspire us. We learnt a variety of techniques and produced a wide range of interesting samples ourselves in just a few hours. It was a good introduction to the possibilities of the Shibori dyeing technique and made me want to explore more.

Pauline Lineham Jul 2019

A wonderful hands on experience. Carizza had everything we needed. She even had a screen prepared for us with a design that was emailed prior to class. The process of making the screen was explained and demonstrated and the actual printing was demonstrated step by step. We had every opportunity to use different materials for the printing and a tote bag as well. Carizza was there whenever you needed assistance or advice. The venue was well setup but parking could be a problem as it is in a lane way with lots of driveways. Thanks Carizza for a great session. Our group would glady recommend the workshop. Yes great value.

Merryn Bourne Jul 2019

Hello, our teacher Carizza was great, very passionate about her craft. The studio set up is perfect for the workshop. She patiently explained the steps clearly with tips, and best practise for screen printing.

Carizza was really great in accommodating our large group of 13. She was really clear in explaining the process to us and offered us lots of help throughout the workshop.

We learnt the process of emulsion screen printing from start to finish. We were able to submit custom designs in advance, and print with on the day. We had the choice of t-shirt, tote bag or tea towel to print on which was great. Everyone got something they wanted. You could even bring some extra items to print onto if you wanted.

The shared artist space was a little hard to find & a little cold (it is mid June) but was interestingly creative. Location is easily accessible by Uber or a short walk away from Sydenham train station.

The class was great value for money, and such a fun group activity

Di Ooi Jun 2019

Really enjoyed and learnt so much. Carizza was so generous with her teaching and beautiful enthusiasm. Instructions were clear. She is a great teacher. Lots of fun with the whole class. Everything turned out wonderful.

Wint Nhein Jun 2019

Enjoyed my class a lot. The teacher was really helpful, approachable and friendly. Would definitely attend more of her classes in future. I just wish there were more designs to choose from. Felt like most were too simple. Would've also preferred a t-shirt over a totebag

Nick Grayson Jun 2019

Carizza's class was a great refresher of the basics of screen printing. Covering the whole process top to bottom in a comfertable studio environment.

Myra Bulanadi Jun 2019

Carizza was a great teacher, very informative and helpful. The venue was really cool - situated in a large artists' studio with a band playing next door (loved the relaxed vibe). All materials were provided - a tote bag + fabric and paper scraps to practice on. Carizza also mentioned how she tries to recycle as much as possible and be enviro friendly. We learned a lot in the 3 hours and it was a very hands on experience. Highly recommend this class!

Carizza was an exceptional teacher . She explained the procedure with samples and demonstrations in an easy to catch on manner and we were then able to start creating our own samples, with Carizza on hand to make suggestions and assist. I was amazed at how effortless , she made it all seem. One of the most enjoyable workshops I have ever participated in.

Anita Turnbull Apr 2019

This class was well organised by Carizza, demonstration pieces and examples, materials, fabric and dye bath ready to go. The teaching space is set up well with work tables, dyeing and drying spaces. Carizza taught techniques that are easy to follow, but the potential for adding greater detail by combining was also explained and more advanced textile samples were on display to inspire us. Carizza is very welcoming and her knowledge of the indigo dyeing process meant that all our questions were answered in detail. It was great fun too and we got to take a range of our pieces home.

Joanne Knowles Apr 2019

Fabulous screen printing lesson. Clarissa was fantastic in her explanation of the process, and was extremely patient, we really couldn’t have asked for a better teacher.
The venue is an inner city warehouse shared by several artists which added to our artistic experience, a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Easy to find and easy to park close to the venue.
Great value for money, and we have come away feeling confident that we can screen print some of my own designs successfully.
Thank you Carissa, we totally enjoyed our lesson and your encouragement. ❄️

First time ever at a shibori dyeing workshop. Really enjoyed the class. Carizza is a wonderful teacher. Got to try out several techniques. Great foundation to build on. Highly recomend it.

Great introduction to shibori. The venue is an inspiring collective workshop. Carizza explains well all the dyeing steps, then it s our turn to make magic!

Wonderful session, Carizza was lovely to listen to and showed us how the process worked. She was open to all questions and happy to help out if you're struggling. The small class was really nice and we all got to know each other. I think they only suggestion I would have would be to let people know we can buy screens from the session ahead of time, or bring our own items in to screenprint. I've been recommending this class to everyone.

Thanks Carizza!
